AFL star Lance “Buddy” Franklin has crashed into four parked cars in Sydney’s east.


But police have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the smash.

Rose Bay resident Craig McDonald posted pictures of the crash scene on Twitter after spotting the Sydney Swans’ $10 million recruit speaking to police.

“Buddy Franklin has just totalled three cars on New South Head road outside my place,” he wrote on Wednesday night.

Franklin was uninjured and was allowed to leave the scene, but all five vehicles involved in the crash were damaged.

“Inquiries are continuing after a car hit a number of parked vehicles in Rose Bay tonight,” a NSW Police spokesman told AAP.

“The driver of the Jeep was a 27-year-old Bondi man.”

The spokesman said the Bondi man was the sole occupant of the 4WD and underwent a roadside breath test, which returned a negative result.

Fairfax Media reports the Jeep Grand Cherokee that Franklin was driving belonged to his girlfriend, model Jesinta Campbell, who is a brand ambassador for the car maker.

Pictures from the crash scene show the Jeep smashed head-on before it was towed.

The Sydney Swans later confirmed that Franklin was involved in a car accident, and that the vehicle he was driving was involved in a collision which damaged four other stationary vehicles.

“Franklin was the only person involved in the accident. He was not carrying any passengers and there were no passengers in any of the other vehicles involved,” the club said in a statement.

“No one was injured in the accident and Franklin is also unharmed.”

Earlier this year, Franklin’s luxury Mercedes was involved in a car accident.

The club said at the time that Franklin had leant the vehicle to fellow Swan Dan Hannebery.

Franklin relocated from the Hawthorn Hawks this season after signing a deal with the Swans last October worth $10 million.
